Almotamar.net - The Cement National Company of Hayel Saeed Anam Group on Sunday opens the cement factory it has built in Lahj governorate. Investment Director General in the governorate Nazieh al-Shaabi said the opening of the plant comes as part of the investment strategic projects that are expected to meet the shortage in need of cement in the market.
He pointed out that the plant is to produce 1.6 million tons annually with investment cost of $250 million and would provide 800 jobs. The plant would help fill part of the marketing gap in the local market estimated at 5 million tons a year.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
